Valve’s debut title, Half-Life, was released in 1998. It won more than 50 game of the year awards, and PC Gamer even called it the best PC Game ever made. Since then, we’ve shipped a few (but not enough) Half-Life sequels, a World-War II team-based action game, a counter-terrorism game that took the world by storm, a couple games about killing zombies, and a brain-twisting puzzler in which players fold space into knots.
Oh, and TF2 .
